DELAWARE, Ohio - Aug. 31, 2018 - PRLog -- You Taught My Feet To Dance: Learning To Follow His Lead written by Erica Foster has been chosen as a top ten finalist for a 2018 Author Academy Award. An honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.

Foster's book is up for an award in the memoir category. It tells the true courageous story how God taught her to raise 5 young children completely on her own while learning how to overcome many ugly labels like hopeless, abandoned, heartbroken, divorced, worthless, and ashamed, former Pastor's wife.

"This was very difficult to write, but if my story is the key that helps even just one person break out of their prison then it is all worth it," says Foster.

"Out of hundreds of books from authors throughout the world, only ten in each category were chosen as finalists for an Author Academy Award," said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite and the Author Academy Awards. "Our goal is to help further connect this global community of authors, maintain excellence and integrity of the book publishing industry, and raise awareness that the stories being told and the authors who write them are worth our attention."

Authors of all kinds—indie, traditional, or collaborative published—reached the final round of judging for the Author Academy Awards. Finalists are being reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation (cover, content, flow, and originality) by the Academy's voting membership comprised of best-selling authors, literary agents, and industry leaders.

The top ten finalists in each category will be presenting their book synopsis at the Author Academy Awards Red Carpet Session on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. Winners will be announced later that evening at the Author Academy Awards Ceremony where they will be invited to give an acceptance speech. Winners will also receive the opportunity to present their book synopsis at the Igniting Souls Conference main stage on the days immediately following Author Academy Awards in front of a global audience.
